Sculptor and activist Daniel lives in a village and is both devout and openly gay. He organises local farmers' protests against EU agricultural policy and is involved in a working group fighting for equality for homosexuals in the church. This combination earns him both tolerance and respect, unlike his lesbian friend, who commits suicide because of homophobic abuse. Daniel is plagued by guilt - he once encouraged her to open up about her sexual identity. That Daniel openly addresses the conflict meets with little approval and drives him into ever more dangerous arguments. Based on the real-life story of the artist Daniel Rycharski, Łukasz Ronduda and Łukasz Gutt stage here a gripping portrait that is full of surprises and won the Golden Lion at the Gdynia Film Festival 2021.
